there’s no need to store multiple values/cookies, just use one and save timestamp of last message edit.
hide the box if cookie exists and saved timestamp == message, show it and set the cookie if not.
crc32 of message content would also work.
You could just do it this way and then compress all css files into one min.css at the end. Therefore you can work as you are most comfortable and once compressed the page speed issue will not apply.
Using this method, you will need to included an uncompressed example head section in your download package and also a section in your docs explaining how to replace the compressed css with the uncompressed if your buyers wish to make css changes. If not done right though it could lead to lots of support requests.
This is the way we work it in our TF & CC files because we usually have reset, main & skin stylesheets, plus all of our js functionality is developed as plugins for ease of reuse & hence lots of individual import statements. Then we compress both css & js for the live sites and include the above instructions & example for any buyer who wants to get their hands dirty in the css / js code.
So what i have to do will please told me. As i am not familliar about extended licence ues in a product i just this in this week.
Smartdatasoft, Here is a quote exactly lifted from the Envato support twitter account less than 12 hours ago. This is the answer you are waiting for:
Unfortunately no, an extended license doesn’t allow you to incorporate a CC item into another CC item.
If you want to use another’s item in an item for sales on CC like you have done, then the only way to do this is to contact the author and negotiate a profit share or one off payment, like any licencing agreement. If they don’t agree, then you can’t use it. Simple as that.
Just see this on envato_support twitter account:
@pippinspages Hi Pippin. Unfortunately no, an extended license doesn’t allow you to incorporate a CC item into another CC item.
Finally they say it!
We’ve said it before & will say it again….the extended licence is a farce. The terms are ambiguous, the support and policing non-existent. I remember a time when Envato staff actually answered questions about licencing on the forums and sorted out any infraction you informed them about via support. But then all of a sudden something changes and nobody wanted to comment about licencing or copyright stuff. Its pathetic.
VF your unfortunate experience and what i’ve written above is the exact reason why we opted out of all extended licence sales om CC, despite knowing that it would be closing the door on a lot of additional earnings. But if we hadnt dont this you can bet that our slider would be found in pluging on CC & themes on TF which were not authored by us. (we got many requests). Believe it or not, our source code still managed to find its way into several author’s files, so i can imaging what would happen if they couls have got an extended licence and effectively done what they wanted with it!
Extended licences at the very least should be not allowed to be used in the marketplaces (authors can make an agreement for these cases) and the cost of an extended licence should be much more than 5x like it is here on CC.
I noticed on the forums recently that Lance said Envato now has an in house legal team so things regarding licencing are at the top of the list. But i wouldn’t hold my breadth!
Swift takes about 5-7 working days depending on your country.
35$ fee for it, plus any other fee the bank may have for receiving a transfer (in another currecny).
Balance need to be over a limit before its possible (500$ maybe)
One your details are confirmed by Envato (required on your first transfer) they will be saved for use in other months
All is working well here still. I know the whole Marketplace was experiencing some slowdown over the past few days, so it might have been something to do with that!
Are you still experiencing probelms today?
That’s pretty decent, well done. We have all been there (rejection), but don’t fret. I’ll mention a couple of things which come to mind when I visited your link. These are only my reactions to certain things and may not be even close to a reviewer’s opinion on your design.
1. General Typography. – For me, the letter spacing of your titles are too close, while the line height for your body text also seems a little small. I usually work with a 12px/20px font to line-height ratio. In a few spots, like the date of the news article, the font is very difficult to read and almost looks jumbled, perhaps adjust letter spacing or use a font which is not so narrow here.
3. Template type – This might just be me, but it was not apparent for quite a while that this template was a one page template. I scrolled until I met what appeared to be a big white space inserted in error. I guess it appeared this way because the sections weren’t broken very well. For example, main sections and sub-sections don’t have any difference in their heading typography and hence hierarchy / page breaks are not so apparent. Because of this it looked to me that the homepage content stopped, had a large white space, and then continued again after the white space, when in fact it was the about section content which started below the whitespace.
So to fix this I would suggest that you label each section, using the titles from the main nav menu, and make them look more important than sub headings. Also perhaps you could break the background (to reveal the patterned bg) between sections, hence strengthening their separation.
4. Simplicity – This point is probably a bit more about my own design tastes but I thought I would mention it anyway. The template seems to be aiming for a simple / minimal look/ design. But then each section (about, services, collections…) is very bitty. What I mean by this is its full of small areas of text with headings. Sidebars swapping sides, lists here and there. The overall feeling this gives of one of busyness and consequently no section really stands out as memorable or much different than the other. (except the collection one). So if you were going for the clean simple look, I would recommend to simplify the breakdown of content, give each section a unique feeling. Most clients / buyers, who would be in the market for this kind of template, don’t have lots of different text to fill 7-8 separate parts in the services section for example. I think once you have simplified the content, then you will find it easier to control and dish out white space, which is a big part of a minimal theme.
5. Alignment – Last one, I promise. You are the designer, you are trying to get buyers (and the reviewer) to be pleased by the look and feel of your template. Therefore you need to control what they see and make it pleasing. This is easy for you to do because your content is dummy content and doesn’t need to make much sense. For example in your footer, each of the 3 columns is a different length and has a different horizontal rhythm. You should aim to control all of the content as much as is possible, at least for your preview, so that things align with each other, have similar rhythms and control the user’s eye. These are the kind of details which can make a huge difference in first impressions of a template.
Sorry this went on so long. I hope you take all of this with a pinch of salt. The template is nearly there. These are mostly small things, and are linked with my own tastes on things, so if they make no sense to you or you disagree with any of then, then ignore. Perhaps you might find some of the info here useful, if so great.
Best of luck with it. Take your time and it will likely pay off. Donagh.
